Together We Are "Wildcat Strong"

To protect the health and safety of our community, UK students are required to participate in ongoing Covid-19 testing. UK's "Wildcat Strong" program divides students into testing teams. Students are being notified through email, text messaging and phone calls when it's their team's turn to test.

Through Every Obstacle, the UK Family Showed Courage and Grace in 2020

2021 is filled with promise, new opportunity and hope. We can’t wait to welcome you back on campus next semester. Happy Holidays and Happy New Year, Wildcats!
